And if you take my hand, my son,
All will be well when the day is done.

 

A stunning version of Peter Yarrow's gentle song, “Day Is Done,” now available as a board book.  As night falls, animal and human parents everywhere tenderly tuck their children into bed. In the darkness, each child—raccoon, doe, rabbit, field mouse, and a little boy—wonders: Will I be safe? Will you be there for me? And every mommy and daddy responds with the comforting words of Yarrow's refrain: “Yes, I am here.” Caldecott Honor-winning artist Melissa Sweet's gorgeous images celebrate the loving bond between parent and child, as well as the connection between all creatures of the earth.

About the Author:

Peter Yarrow is a member of the iconic '60s folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary. Along with Lenny Lipton, he is the author of the beloved song and now hit book Puff, the Magic Dragon. In addition to extensive touring and performing, Peter is active in Operation Respect, an organization that promotes anti-bullying awareness in schools across the country.

 

Melissa Sweet has illustrated more than 40 children's books, including the 2008 Caldecott Honor winner A River of Words, which was also listed as a New York Times Top Ten Children's Book of the Year. The New York Times Book Review listed Carmine: A Little More Red (Houghton Mifflin)—which she both wrote and illustrated—among its Ten Best Illustrated Books of the Year, and The Boy Who Drew Birds (Houghton Mifflin) was a New York Public Library Best Book for 2004.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—Peter (Yarrow), Paul, and Mary's familiar song isn't a natural fit for a picture book like Puff, the Magic Dragon (Sterling, 2007). The lyrics, such as "You shall inherit what humankind has done" and "Can you see what we all disguise/through your loving eyes?" are too sophisticated for the intended audience and the refrain "when the day is done" is awkward to read aloud repeatedly. Charming watercolor and mixed-media illustrations depict animal parents comforting their children, and the last scene shows a father lovingly tucking his son into bed. While this is a beautiful package, with a lovely CD including "Day Is Done," "I Know Where I'm Going," and "Dona Dona Dona" recorded by Peter Yarrow and his daughter Bethany, the audience will be limited to adults nostalgic for the music and its message.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL END
